the policy of the united states since 9/11, including the bush administration, and the obama administration, for terror suspects apprehended within the united states to be treated in the federal system. there are two brief exceptions to that under the bush administration, even though two exceptions were treated in the civilian system. >> let me jump in. because senator graham was saying on fox just last night, or today, i'm fine with him getting tried in federal court. this is just about the initial designation. >> right. it's very difficult to actually designate somebody under the laws of war as an enemy combatant and not give them the rights and then try to drop them into the civilian system. you set yourself up when you do that. >> no -- >> let m point, jay. you set yourself up for all kinds of extensive challenges. there isn't a problem here. what you have i think is an enormous amount of public support right now for the job that law enforcement has done. and for senators who are not immediately involved in this thing, and many whom aren't even lawyers or been inside a court of law for
counterterrorism analyst and served as director of national counterterrorism center under presidents bush and obama. michael, good to see you. >> good morning, matt. >> he's under federal custody right now. he's not been mirandized. hasn't been read the lights we see in tv and in the movies and a normal part of criminal proceedings. what leeway does that give the federal government and what does it not allow them to do? >> the federal government has a fair bit of latitude at the beginning to ask him questions that relate to directly to the public safety about other bombs, about other plotters. now, this is all judicial doctrine so there's no clear standards on how long that would last but that period should go into today and maybe even tomorrow. at some point he's going to have to be presented to a u.s. magistrate and hear the charges and from there he'll get back into the system. the hope would be that he'll talk even if he is mirandized by the fbi. >> so this public safety exception, are there other bombs out there, other accomplices, is it going to take a smart defense lawyer to say, wait a seco
after taking over from the bush administration is that president obama established an elite high value target special interrogation team. which he said that he would use for any high value terrorism targets that would be sort of the state of the art a-team on interrogations. this is a federal case. this guy is in fbi custody. is this the sort of case in which the president's a team on interrogation would be called in or would this be handled by your standard professional fbi interrogation team? >> i would say the high value target team would be in boston already and they want it interview this guy. these are u.s. citizens. and whatever the protocol that that high value team developed, is going to have to come into play. you remember, this guy came to the u.s. when he was 8 years old. he is a u.s. citizen. all of his rights are afforded but i would say that team is there. and if they are not the ones doing the interview, they are standing outside the door talking to the agent who are doing the interview. >> james cavanaugh, former atf agent in charge. thanks you, james. i want to go bac
both the bush and the obama administrations have done remarkable work in preventing many more of these things. and when they do happen, we have to come together as a country and support each other. this should not be politicized. i would be disappointed if we ended up trying to politicize this, trying to make some point about immigration or gun control or -- or republican/democrat. we all were hurt as a nation. we should all heal together as a nation. >> i want to thank all our panel who have been working with us really all throughout this week but also especially these last 23, 24 hours. it really was 24 hours ago, around 10:00 last night when that report of a robbery at a convenience store kicked off what was the final end game in this manhunt that as mayor giuliani said and juliette echoed, it is not over. it is the beginning of a whole new phase. and final notes now. as john king mentioned about the people who should not be forgotten and should be remembered long after the suspects fade into history and we forgot their names as hopefully we will one day. history should not
. on the issue of the obama administration, during the 2008 campaign, president obama criticized the bush administration's treatment of detainees. candidate obama promised to close guantanamo and to reject torture without exception or equivocation. he also criticized the previous administration for executive secrecy, included repeated invocation of the state's secret privilege to get civil lawsuits thrown out of court and the promise to lead a new era of openness. the administration has fulfilled some of those promises, and conspicuously failed to fulfill others. in some cases because congress has blocked them, but in other cases for reasons of their own. as asa mentioned earlier, high- level secrecy surrounding the rendition and torture of detainees since september 11 cannot continue to be justified on the basis of national security. the authorized enhanced techniques have been publicly disclosed and the c.i.a. has approved its former employee's publication of detailed accounts of individual interrogation. ongoing classification of material documenting these practices serves only to conc
difficult message and i think both president bush and president obama have actually struck a good tone on this. but i'm not sure people listened to them. the fact is, the government should be very worried about terrorists. the government should be compulsive about terrorism and the rest of us shouldn't worry about it too much. that doesn't mean if we see something we shouldn't turn it in. but we shouldn't go stop our lives. we are all going to die. and we're probably going to die of something else other than terrorism. >> we got to jump in. we're coming up against a hard break. when we come back, how is the white house handling the first terror bombing on american soil since 9-11? we'll talk to mayor giuliani about that. coming right back ♪ using supercomputing and mobile technology over our secure network, verizon innovators are building a world of medical treatment data in the cloud. so doctors can make a more informed diagnosis from anywhere, in seconds rather than months. because the world's biggest challenges deserve even bigger solutions. powerful answers. verizon. you'll have
to bush and continues in the obama administration, felt that putin maybe has gone too far. putin's contention is i'm dealing with monsters here. you don't understand, you're facing the same risk. there's a real issue there. neil: a weighty issue. mayor, i know you have to go, but talking about separatists in europe and what's going on in chechnya, and -- >> that's why we have to be very, very careful about what we -- neil: that's a lot of money too. that's a lot of money, time, and effort to follow every single nefarious -- >> careful what we buy into and get it right because if we want to predict the next situation, we've got to know how this situation really emerges. neil: if this brother is killed, the father said abroad as you might have heard, woe to the united states if you harm my son. >> that was a heck of a comment. that was a chilling -- neil: it was chilling. makes me think whether these brothers then, in that sense, are a martyr for a cause that's not good. >> well, it'll be another issue for us to deal with. we've actually, with this incidenn aside and major hassan,
to stay in washington from sunday through wednesday. >>> so what do members of the obama administration hope the chinese will do? we asked the director of the brookings institution center for northeast asian policy studies, richard bush. >> china is sometimes able to use its influence to get north korea to the negotiating table. it is less able to use influence to shape north korea's negotiating position, and that's the problem. north korea's goals here and its negotiating stance are dimetrically opposed to those of the united states, japan, and south korea. so the question that ambassador davies will probably be asking ambassador wu is, what evidence is there that north korea is interested in negotiating in a manner that's consistent with the six-party talks? what evidence is there that if it makes commitments, it will actually keep them? china's response will probably be it's only if we start a process of contacts and talking and negotiating that we will see what is possible in the long term. our response is likely to be, well, we have a lot of experience doing that, and north korea h
they want to. >> this is a matter of policy under the bush and especially the obama administration, connecting jihad holy war and islamists who embrace it and believe it is their god-directed obligation to engage in it with the attacks or terrorism we are supposed to be defending ourselves against has been impermissible. this is crazy and it has created, i think, vulnerabilities as has frankly the lessening of the engagement of the public in this war. you have been talking about it all morning the public helped enormously once those pictures wept up. it's very much the case that we need to have the public on the case all the time. it's kind of a question of are we on a war footing in the face of this jihadist threat. this global jihadist threat or aren't we? unless and until we are, i think we will wind up having a lot moornd worse of these kind of attacks. >> brian: do you believe there are other people involved with these two? >> there were other people involved certainly in providing, i suspect, freezing rain structure, training and support. we need to find them, too. >> brian:
